Edgar Garcia: Let go by Nats
The Nationals released Garcia from his minor-league contract Thursday.
Garcia made 52 relief appearances in the majors across stints with the Phillies, Rays, Reds and Twins over the past three seasons, but he had pitched exclusively in the minors in 2022 after joining the Nationals on a minor-league deal in April. Over his 24 innings at Double-A Harrisburg this season, Garcia logged a 6.38 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Edgar Garcia: Booted from 40-man roster
Garcia was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday after clearing waivers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
At some point after optioning Garcia to Triple-A over the weekend, the Twins removed him from the 40-man roster and exposed him to waivers, only for the 24-year-old right-hander to go unclaimed.

Garcia was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.
Garcia spent a week on the big-league roster in his latest stint with the team, but things didn't go remotely well for him, as he allowed eight runs in 3.1 innings of work. He now owns a 12.27 ERA in 14.2 innings this season and a 7.74 mark in 57 innings for his career.... See More ... See Less

Garcia made four relief appearances at Triple-A St. Paul after he was claimed off waivers by the Twins on July 30, and he allowed two hits and a walk while striking out six in five scoreless innings.

Twins' Edgar Garcia: Claimed by Minnesota
Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Friday.
The 24-year-old was designated for assignment by the Reds earlier in the week, and he'll make his way to a new organization. Garcia struggled during a brief stint in the majors for Cincinnati with eight runs allowed over 4.1 frames. He's fared better at Triple-A with a 3.38 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB across 24 innings.... See More ... See Less

Garcia's contract was selected by the Reds on Monday.
Garcia was designated for assignment back on Opening Day but remained in the Reds' organization. He's pitched well in 24 innings for Triple-A Louisville, posting a 29.6 percent strikeout rate and a 3.38 ERA, though he'll likely be limited to low-leverage innings during his time with the team, as he owns a 6.17 career ERA in 42.1 innings at the highest level....

Reds' Edgar Garcia: Outrighted to alternate site
Garcia cleared waivers Saturday and was outrighted to the Reds' alternate training site.
Garcia is still just 24 years old, but he's shown very little in his 42.1 big-league innings thus far, struggling to a 6.17 ERA while walking 16.0 percent of opposing batters. With that track record, it's no surprise he passed through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Edgar Garcia: Designated for assignment
Garcia was designated for assignment by the Reds on Thursday.
Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Louisville in March but will now be removed from the 40-man roster after Jonathan India's contract was selected by the Reds. Even if the right-hander is claimed off waivers, he's unlikely to serve in a high-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Edgar Garcia: Optioned to Triple-A
Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
Garcia signed a big-league deal in December but won't break camp in the major-league bullpen. He owns a 6.17 ERA in 42.1 innings at the highest level, so there's no reason to believe he'll serve in a high-leverage role any time soon.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Edgar Garcia: Signs with Reds
Garcia signed a major-league deal with Cincinnati on Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old was non-tendered by the Rays in early December, but he was able to receive another big-league opportunity. Garcia gave up four runs over 3.1 innings last season and had a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45:26 K:BB over 39 innings during the 2019 campaign.... See More ... See Less

Garcia was non-tendered by the Rays on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Sent to alternate site
Garcia was optioned to the alternate training site after Wednesday's win over the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The 23-year-old was acquired by the Rays from the Phillies in mid-August and joined the big-league roster shortly after the trade. Garcia allowed four runs on three hits with one strikeout and four walks over 3.1 innings while recording one save and two holds.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Edgar Garcia: Nabs first career save
Garcia struck out one in two-thirds of an inning Tuesday to record his first career save in a 4-2 win over the Orioles.
Manager Kevin Cash seemed willing to allow Jalen Beeks to pick up a two-inning save, but when the lefty exited the game with elbow trouble, Garcia got the call and needed only five pitches (three strikes) to finish the job. The 23-year-old put up some interesting numbers in the minors for the Phillies before a rough big-league debut last year, and with Nick Anderson (forearm) on the shelf, Garcia could remain part of the Rays' closer committee....

Rays' Edgar Garcia: Called up from alternate site
The Rays recalled Garcia from their alternate training site Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Garcia will join the big club's relief corps as a replacement for bullpen ace NicK Anderson (forearm), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old right-hander's first appearance with Tampa Bay will mark his team debut after he was acquired from the Phillies on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Edgar Garcia: Traded to Tampa
Garcia was traded from the Phillies to the Rays on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Garcia will report to the Rays' secondary training site for now. The reliever struggled to a 5.77 ERA in his 39-inning debut last season, with his 26.2 percent strikeout rate offset by a 15.1 percent walk rate and 2.5 HR/9. He's still just 23 years old, though, and the Rays have a reputation for improving pitchers, so there's a chance he's an effective weapon at some point down the line.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Edgar Garcia: Cast off 40-man roster
Garcia was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Thursday.
Garcia made 37 appearances for the Phillies in 2019, posting a 5.77 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 45:26 K:BB across 39 innings. This move frees up a spot on the roster for prospect Alec Bohm, who was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
